"RE: Netanyahu and the Bible codes"

Hello, John and Doves,
Amen, Janine!  I couldn't have said it better!
However, may I lament the fact that the ancient Greek plays
are not often required learning in today's high schools.
I am thinking about Sophocles' tragic trilogy,
"Oedipus Rex," "Oedipus at Colonus," and "Antigone."
We learn that you cannot cheat fate, no matter where you go.
Either fate will find you, or--as in this case--you chase your fate unwittingly.
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"Netanyahu and the Bible codes"

This is EXACTLY what the Bible Codes are not to be used for!  Drosnin tries
to predict the future with them.  At worst, they are a random deception.  At
best, they can be used to see something AFTER it has happened.  If you look
at the codes, you would see Netanyahu in the same string as something else
in equidistant letter sequences.  Now, someone might be discussing Netanyahu
and NYC or it may be completely unrelated.  To try to use them for future
predictions and being adamant that this is what they say is divination which
is forbidden.  Beware of anyone trying to use them in this manner.
